The weekend of the 16th we spent it in NYC, it was fantastic! It started out with a The Veins show on Friday and because we didn't feel like commuting all the way back to Jersey we stayed in a hotel for the next 2 days. I love NYC...as it was expected we visited several vegetarian and semi-vegetarian yummy spots. I am dedicating this post to review these restaurants.
On Saturday morning we visited our favorite vegetarian eatery and teahouse of all time: Teany. If you go to the City you have to go to this place. For those who don't know it, a few years back, it was opened by Moby and his ex-girlfriend on the Lower East Side. The ambiance is so comfy and inviting, it is a small place but with a big heart (cheesy but true!). We have probably been to Teany three or four times and each time the food gets better and better. They have a huge selection of teas and I'm embarrassed to say I haven't tried them (I was the biggest tea drinker of all time but coffee has befriended me lately). I ordered baked eggs, orange juice, a latte, fruit salad and toast. It was amazing and healthy! My husband ordered a Teany bagel with veggie Canadian bacon, tomato and cheese, fruit salad, and another sandwich that was really good but we can't remember the name. And my brother ordered scrambled eggs with toast and fruit salad, similar to my dish.
In the evening we visited Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop. I was happy with my order as well as my brother but my husband did not care for his. The good thing about this place is that they can make the majority of the dishes vegetarian! I love it when they are open to serving veggie heads, when I first became a vegetarian I would ask or request meatless dishes but later I learned that there are many chefs who hate vegetarians so I chose to keep my mouth shut and just eat what I knew was meatless. I ordered a
